FIRST: Use last night's homework to do your best on this QUIZ

SECOND: After taking the quiz and checking your score (in your email) we'll be reviewing some of the key ideas from last night's assignment. As you wait for others to finish, you may want to test your own understanding of the Bill of Rights with either of this matching game.
Hard: Bill of Rights Match game (Choose Elementary for an easier game, of Secondary for a tougher one.)

THIRD: To learn more about the reason we have a Bill of Rights, we'll be watching a video and answering some questions using the Annenberg Classroom Bill of Rights video & quiz. You'll need headphones or earbuds to do this, so get some if you don't have some of your own. When you've finished the activity, call Mr. Knowles over to record your score.

FINALLY: When finished with the video and quiz, open a Google Doc called Bill of Rights, and use the File > Make a copy... to create a copy of the document that you can work with. You'll be using this document throughout much of the unit to build a better understanding of the Bill of Rights.
